The Winner Takes It All
Warning: The following review will most certainly contain spelling/grammar errors and does not contain any witty nihilistic remarks.
I'd like to thank "Lum" for this item...It is amusing. Prizes include: Polaroid Camera, An overload of Canned Food, two Poodles, Trips to Paris and Rome, a Boat, Home Furniture, Carpeting, and a Pre-Fab Home.
We have a celebrity here, and stuff.
Attention: Being a game-show, the edited copy runs at less than a sitcom or drama from the same year, and we also get a rare view as to why you should NEVER kinescope a pre-existing film (see segment showing pre-fab house).
Regardless...This is good television, and even features a brief Chevrolet commercial.
EDIT: I forgot to add the following: I am still concerned about the copyright status of the last 6 seconds or so. Also, I forgot to add that, according to the last few minutes, this was the last Prime Time episode for a while (I don't know if it was ever revived as a Prime-Time show, since I live in a country outside of the region this show was produced in, and local variants were made by another company...which brings up the fact that this show also aired where I live, Australia, in a local version probably produced by Reg-Grundy. Since I found this United States version to be a whole lot of fun, I'd be interested if any old kinescopes exist of AU version are still around, as AU copyrights last much less than the USA regarding television (but not books and text, strangely enough)..
